Default Mt. Thielsen & Crater Lake

If you’re headed to Crater Lake make sure you check out Mt. Thielsen as well. Totally worth it.

That is one beautiful peak! Don't you just want to go sledding down that face?

Great picture! It brings back memories. I Climbed to the top in my twentys. There's only room for a few people at one time up there I need to fly over one of these days.

Default Mt Thielsen Picture.

Mt Thielsen. Elevation 9,184’
Just one of many semi-extinct volcanoes, part of “The Pacific Ring of Fire” along the Cascade Mountains that extend from Southern British Columbia through Washington, Oregon & Northern California. Mt Rainer in Washington State being the highest at 14,411’.
I say semi-extinct due to the eruption of Mt St Helen’s on May 18, 1980 that reduced its elevation of 9,677’ to 8,363’ and created a huge crater over a mile wide and massive destruction.
The Cascade Mountains are “eye candy” that refreshes your spirit.
Thanks for the beautiful picture.
